theme in a busy day at the office from the executive branch. of course when you're dealing with the nra this is somewhat expected. republicans have made no secrets that they intend to make the confirmation of chuck hagel very difficult. and jack lou who was nominated for treasury secretary will have a much easier go of it than hagel. well, the conventional wisdom may be wrong. alabama senator jeff sessions, who is the ranking minority member of the senate budget committee had this to say about jack lou. >> i tend to oppose this nomination. he doesn't bring the former new york fed chairman like secretary geithner and other very prominent people that we've had as secretary of treasury the premier financial position in the united states government more important because our president has no training, and really no understanding of class classical business and economics. >> jennifer: and an unnamed congression nat source told the "washington post" jennifer ruben that lou was the one to screw up any dales deals and proposed lefty positions, whatever that means. and, we don't need a treasury
